The last few months have been a relaxation period of sorts for NASCAR drivers after a hectic and chaotic 2020 season. One driver enjoying the offseason time to the fullest is Brad Keselowski.

The Team Penske driver took to Twitter to share a post with a video of his daughter Scarlett driving a small kart. Sitting beside her in the kart, his caption understandably expressed his pride at seeing her behind the wheel of it.

His post’s caption read, “Hard to believe this thing used to be my old kart! Proud dad moment seeing Scarlett behind the wheel.”

Brad Keselowski also has an exciting enterprise operational away from professional racing

Keselowski’s children have accompanied him to paddocks at various racetracks in the past. Back in 2015, he had also dedicated his Kentucky 300 win that season in July to his elder daughter Scarlett a few weeks after she was born through a heartfelt blog post.

Earlier last year, the 36-year-old had even posted a video of Scarlett taking it ‘nice and slow’ while racing on the Dover track with the iRacing online game simulator. Quite possibly, she might have a special penchant for racing after all then!

Away from professional racing and his family, the Team Penske No.2 now also runs his own firm named the ‘Keselowski Advanced Manufacturing’. He had even recently spoken about the way operations were progressing at the company and believed that the future for it looked bright.

Keselowski could win a second Cup Series title in 2021

After a good 2020 season, Keselowski did get very closer to winning the championship title. He even made it in the Championship 4 at Phoenix. It would have meant a second trophy after his 2012 Cup title.

Sadly, however, his efforts were only better by eventual victor Chase Elliott, who blazed past the field from the back to lift the trophy. That only strives to give Keselowski more motivation for 2021, though.

He has thus far won 34 races in his career in the top division. And could well improve on that number with some luck and an enhanced car this season. He could put up a staunch title challenge and make himself a genuine contender for the Cup in 2021.
